Probably not! Think of the damage if it comes loose. Let alone leaving you stranded.
I had a fly wheel nut come loose because the "mechanic" didn't replace the nut with a new one. (The book clearly states not to use the old one). I was lucky it didn't wreck the motor and that I didn't come off when it locked-up. Somehow the bike kept running untill I got home. I thought it was the chain at first so I limped home but I was skeerd it would happen again the whole way.
I have since replaced the nut with an aftermarket jam nut and lotsa red.
A few ccs short of a full litre.
